GOI’s noodle spine

At the recent USI National Security Seminar, Nov 17-18, on ‘Peace & Stability in Asia-Pacific Region: Assessment of the Security Architecture’, retired Taiwanese Major General Liu Kuang-Chung informed me that a visit to Delhi scheduled for end-October by Dong Kuo-Yu, Adviser to Taiwan President Ma, was cancelled virtually at the last minute, perhaps for fear of  adverse Beijing reaction. Another  example of the Indian government’s noodle-spined approach to China.

    The noodle has long slipped out of the fork. It’s waiting to be smudged under the pandas foot.
